This landmark biography uncovers extensive new evidence in British and German archives, making possible the most complete and accurate assessment of this thirty-three-year reign. Andrew C. Thompson paints a richly detailed portrait of the many-faceted monarch in his public as well as his private life. Born in Hanover in 1683, George Augustus first came to London in 1714 as the new Prince of Wales. He assumed the throne in 1727, held it until his death in 1760, and has the distinction of being Britain's last foreign-born king and the last king to lead an army in battle. With George's story at its heart, the book reconstructs his thoughts and actions through a careful reading of the letters and papers of those around him. Thompson explores the previously underappreciated roles George played in the political processes of Britain, especially in foreign policy, and as a patron of the arts. He also charts the intricacies of the king's complicated relationships and reassesses the lasting impact of his frequent return trips to Hanover. George II emerges from these pages as an independent and cosmopolitan figure of undeniable historical fascination. - Publisher+-+474366558538025ocn002182958book18480.79Hervey, John HerveyMemoirs of the reign of George the Second : from his accession to the death of Queen CarolineHistory3604ocn000898792book19730.53Chenevix Trench, CharlesGeorge IIBiography3294ocn000877782book19630.59Hervey, John HerveyMemoirs26912ocn085884824book17270.84Foxcroft, ThomasGod the judge, putting down one, and setting up another a sermon upon occasion of the death of our late sovereign lord King George, and the accession of His present Majesty, King George II to the British throne.

Pastor of the said ChurchSermons2513ocn156832070book20070.76Black, JeremyGeorge II : puppet of the politicians?HistoryBiography"Why is George II the forgotten monarch? Despite his lengthy rule (1727-1760) he has been so neglected that most of us know little or nothing of him." "One answer is the lack of easily accessible source material - George left no diary and was not a letter writer. But George has also been dismissed as merely a puppet in the hands of the towering politicians of his time: in particular Wilpole, Pitt and Newcastle." "In this new biography - the first for over 30 years - Jeremy Black reassesses this charge, and demonstrates convincingly that George II is a worthy subject of enquiry. Exploiting rich archival resources, including contemporary satire and the letters written about George rather than by him, he pieces together a figure who was the pivot in an often finely balanced - and sometimes dangerously unbalanced - fledgling political system." "By drawing comparisons between George, his predecessors and successors, his European counterparts and famous ministers of the day, Black goes beyond biography. He not only reveals much about George himself, but also dissects the role of the king and the changing face of monarchical power."--BOOK JACKET+-+02534340352434ocn137221472book20070.24Borman, TracyHenrietta Howard : king's mistress, queen's servantHistoryBiographyBorman's biography reveals a woman who was far more than the mistress to King George II.

Often derided as the buffoon who ""hated all boets and bainters"", George II was fortunate to be served by Prime Ministers Sir Robert Walpole and William Pitt, and was wise enough to leave the business of government to them.
